Player Notes
Mariners third base prospect D.J. Peterson went 2-for-4 with a home run for Double-A Jackson on Wednesday.

Advice: After hitting .326/.381/.615 over 65 games with High-A High Desert, Peterson has hit .312/.363/.527 with five doubles and five home runs with Double-A Jackson. He has continued to hit at a high level despite playing in a more neutral offensive environment and the more advanced pitching in Double-A. Peterson profiles as a slugging corner infielder who hits for a solid average with good power, though he may need to move across the diamond to first base if he does not improve his defense. Either way, his bat has the potential to make him a perennial All-Star at any position.
